With the international break coming to a close, it’s time to start looking ahead of Chelsea’s crunch clash with Middlesbrough…

The Blues have been in fine form so far this season, and in truth – the international break came at the wrong time for Antonio Conte’s team.

After a win, most teams would rather keep their momentum going, but the Blues have been interrupted by a 2-week break. Nonetheless, Antonio Conte and his men will be expected to come away from the Riverside with all 3 points.

Middlesbrough themselves have been in good form this season, and Antonio Conte will have to ensure that his team selection is absolutely perfect – or he could risk losing the game.

Expect the same formation with 1 or 2 new faces as Conte looks to freshen up his side.

With that said, this Chelsea 3-4-3 XI will definitely beat Middlesbrough on Saturday
